Patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) commonly have pain, bleeding, infection and pressure symptoms from their enlarged kidneys. Our specialists offer multiple minimally invasive treatment options for patients with these symptoms.
Previously, PKD patients with end-stage renal failure who need their kidneys removed were limited to open surgery with very large incisions. This often caused complications and a very slow recovery. Today, we offer the laparoscopic approach that allows removal of these large kidneys through small incisions using special laparoscopic techniques including tissue morcellation.
Laparoscopic cyst unroofing has provided patients with significant pain relief.
